Hey, I was having problems for a long, long time with IE5.5 and was finally given the answer!

It would pause about every 5 to 10 links for anywhere from 15 to 60 seconds....... just sorta waiting for nothing. Then when it hooked up, everything downloaded at the proper speed.

So, if you have the problem, here's the answer, courtesy of Andrew Liebe, a user on

Hey...I just noticed that you posted you had a problem with your DSL lagging
every 5-6 links or so. Here is something I found out on

1. Right click on Network Neighborhood on your desktop and go to
2. Under the configuration tab, find the TCP/IP protocol that has your
NIC card attached to it.
3. Click on the properties for the above mentioned
4. On the very first window that appears click on Specify an IP address
radio button
5. Enter the following:
a. IP address
b. Subnet Mask
6. Click on OK
7. Click on OK again
8. Windows should appear to install something than it will ask to
9. Reboot
10. Your problem should be solved


Works like a charm! No hesitations ever! None!

.... Greg :-)))))) a happy camper!!!!

Hmm, does DHCP not work correctly?

Apparently not, Daniel. And apparently quite a number of others have had the problem, especially on DSL lines. I've had the problem since I upgraded to IE5.5, even on 56K dial-up.

Does anyone know if the "Advanced" settings in Windows for Ethernet Adapter cards can be optimized for performance, when using a DS: modem? For example, DMA Burst Length, Flow Control, Receive and Transmit Buffers, and so on?
